    if you go, close your phone until you get to Vegas, and when your up there fire-up the phone in Vegas

    P.S. : remember what happen in Vegas stay's in Vegas ;p

    In my experience, I've just gotten a voice/roaming package. Yes data usage can send you to the poor house real quick (...well, so can Vegas for that matter). Though if you are just emailing, not opening attachments, not using google maps, surfing the web etc your regular email usage is a very small amount and will only cost you a few or 10 dollars (total loose estimate). What I did last time is set my phone to "Data off when roaming" and was able to connect to wifi (in the "Data Off When Roaming" mode) when available and was able to get my emails, use browser as well as BBM. A couple times I did data roam, but as aforementioned I restricted it to text only email.

    That's the beauty of BlackBerry; it's efficient use of data for email.
